On 1st September 2016, the management of the former Cheadle Hulme Recreation Centre was transferred to Cheadle Hulme High School (CHHS) and, after extensive refurbishment, Club Cheadle Hulme was launched in November.
Club Cheadle Hulme invested £1 million in the building to provide an exciting new fitness experience, which incorporated a brand new gym utilising the latest technology and equipment. We also have a state of the art floodlit 3G full-size pitch for football and rugby, as well as a smaller astro-turf pitch and refurbished tennis courts. In November 2019, we upgraded our gym equipment to maintain our commitment to deliver state of the art facilities to our members.
Our team of qualified staff here at Club Cheadle Hulme and Club Laurus offer our customers excellent sport and leisure opportunities in the local area.

In August 2004, Rob received a call-up to the England Under-21 squad as a substitute for their friendly against Ukraine; he played for and captained the England under-19 team.
During the 2006/07 season, Rob was part of the Stockport County side that set a record for winning nine games in a row without conceding, notable for playing every minute of the nine-game run.

Rob joined Life Leisure in 2013, responsible for generating new business at Stockport Sports Village, going on in 2015 to become Football and Membership Sales Manager, generating income at three sites through football pitch hire and membership sales.
